On Friday, I went to my local camera store...where I've been on the waiting list for the new Canon 5D MarkII camera since Early November....and I pop in to just politely ask for the millionth time if they've gotten the camera in yet. And of course it was a big-fat NO. errrr! This camera is in such high demand right now that it compares to how it was when the Wii came out and the iPhone. In fact, the camera store only gets two camera bodies in per shipment and they've only had one shipment since the camera was released. I've been checking about 3-4 online stores every other day for the past month to keep up on any updates. So, HOW SHOCKED was I to get onto www.Bestbuy.com and find that they had a sexy little 5D MarkII camera just sitting on a shelf at the Oak Park location. Uh, yea...you best believe I put the petal to the metal and picked one up. :)
Without further ado...my new family member...
First name: Canon
Middle Name: 5D
Last Name: MarkII

If you are reading this and know about this camera already, you know what these next pictures are. yeah.....that's right. TOTAL NIGHT SHOTS...without a tripod. Oh, baby! I actually haven't read my manual all the way yet, so I didn't even expand the ISO all the way...but it' still way more capable than my 30D. In fact, these night shots were spontaneous and done on just auto. I took the first picture without any expectations that it would turn out.
Here's the stats: Midnight (2 nights ago), ISO 3200, f/2.8, 1/5, Lens: 16-35mmL

Ok...this was ended up being a longer exposure, so it was blurry, but I still think it kicks major camera @ss!

This one was from today. I was driving home from running errands and snapped a quick picture of the cool sky through my tinted car window.
